7 Blankets Knit-a-thon heads to The Yard Riversands


Everyone is invited to a 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day Knit-a-thon hosted at Ingénuité at The Yard this Saturday 20 October from 09H00 to 13h00.

The morning of knitting and crochet is open to all levels of skill – wool and needles will be provided along with good cheer and instruction. Experienced knitters are invited to knit or crochet on the morning to contribute to the INCREDIBLE 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela dAY project. The event is one many organised by 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day , an incredible initiative that has become a “knitting revolution” that has given thousands of South Africans comfort and warmth during winter.

“We hosted the first Ingénuité Knit-a-thon in June 2016 at Montecasino with many happy knitters taking part. The 67 Blankets initiative is an important nation building initiative – it’s one with heart and community spirit. We’re delighted to bring this event to our new home at The Yard, Riversands,” says Dave Openshaw, owner of Ingénuité at The Yard.

“We are really excited to be wooling  once again with Dave at his new home  at The Yard and after our last successful knitathon with him and his team, we hope to see many old and new knitwits on Saturday“, says Carolyn Steyn, 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day.

Ingenuite at The Yard Riversands is based at Riversands Incubation Hub, located north of Fourways off the William Nicol. For more information about the event contact
